White House Pledges $5 Billion for Education
Around Texas

July, 2009

The Obama administration has committed $5 billion in federal  funds to state governments that embrace the administration's  ideas for reforming the nation's schools, the Associated Press  reports.

Included in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act passed  earlier this year, the Race to the Top Fund will require states  to meet a series of conditions to earn points and boost their  chances of receiving additional Department of Education funding.

Grants from the fund will be used to encourage education reforms,  with a focus on developing tougher academic standards, finding  better ways to recruit and keep effective teachers, tracking  student performance, and developing plans of action to turn  around failing schools.
